“Here’s Johnny!” It may not be overly faithful to Stephen King’s best-seller, but Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980) is a Rolls Royce horror film. This prestigious scarefest from one of the world’s most celebrated filmmakers is the definition of sinister, with Kubrick’s steadicam prowling the corridors of the Overlook Hotel, revealing horrors like ghostly twin girls, an old lady rotting in a bathtub, elevators gushing blood, and Jack Nicholson’s gradual descent from family man to axe-wielding psychopath. It’s everything you want – and expect – from a Kubrick-directed horror film.
